Almost six months on from its release, the Nintendo Wii U is still struggling to build a robust lineup of titles. The latest franchise to start quietly shuffling towards the bench is EA Sports' Madden
series, which will not be making an appearance on the console in 2013.
According to Nintendo World Report
, this marks the first time Madden
will be skipping Nintendo platforms since 1991.
"We have a strong partnership with Nintendo and will continue to evaluate opportunities to deliver additional Madden NFL
products for Nintendo fans in the future," EA Sports said in its official statement.
